Webinar: An Introduction to Life Cycle Assessment: Measuring Cause and Effect Relationships Between Industrial Systems and the Environment

Dec 02, 2020 12:00pm

Life cycle assessment is a complex, detailed process of identifying and measuring the inputs that go into a product and the outputs that occur as a result. It is a valuable tool for understanding the impacts of the materials used throughout the value chain. It can be used to identify the biggest targets, establish a baseline, make meaningful comparisons, guide the product development process and tell a story or support product environmental declarations. This webinar will provide an introduction to life cycle assessment and how it can be properly used to understand and support decision making globally.

On Wednesday, December 2, from 12:00 -1:00 p.m. EST, join PCPC and life cycle assessment/sustainability experts, Dr. Jim Fava and Dr. John Heckman, Anthesis, for this complimentary, PCPC members-only webinar to learn more about life cycle assessment and how it can be used to deliver both business and social value.
